Join Brad, Andrew, and Tori as they try to survive through Guilermo Del Toro and Hideo Kojima’s latest nightmare, PT. Better late than never, eh?
Today, at GDC ’13, The Phantom Pain/Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes has official being called “Metal Gear Solid V”. During the stream, game play videos, trailers, and information regarding the FOX engine were given. There is certainly a lot of information to take in from the footage. That means a whole bunch of speculation. We’re presuming that Psycho Mantis and Revolver Ocelot shows up in some fashion, but we’re only going on what we saw.
We’ll be posting a link for the entire conference when it becomes available.
UPDATE: Contrary to what Kojima announced at GDC, Konami has confirmed that Ground Zeroes is actually still a separate game from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Details are still hazy on what it is, but I wouldn’t doubt some sort of prequel story or something along those lines. -Source
You can ignore that now exclamation mark now. No need to be stealthy when you have a sword that can cut almost anything. Get your revengance on with Metal Gear Rising: Revengance!
Two new game videos were released today for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The first video shows off a fight against a gorilla based enemy. What interest is that the enemy’s moveset changes whenever you cut off a limb. If the enemy loses an arm, it’ll try to get Raiden into a headlock. If the enemy loses both arms, it gonna dropkick your ass. Also, an old friend returns, and just in time for Cinco de Mayo it seems.
We get to see a Metal Gear Ray boss battle in the second video. It seems like the strategy is to avoid missile and laser blasts (very Godzilla like) while trying to cut off pieces of armor and limbs. The slow down sword frenzy mode looks to be crucial. There are a few quick time events, but nothing too extreme, meaning that the game won’t play itself.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in the US on February 19, 2013.
I would be surprised, but that’s what Hideo Kojima would want me to act. MGS 2 supposed to be the last game? Nope, gotta make room for MGS 3 (don’t get me wrong, it’s my favorite MGS game). Then MGS 4 came along. “But wait, MGS 3 was supposed to be the last game!” Kojima: “Nope, but don’t worry, this is the last one, PROMISE.”
4 years later, Kojima provides proof that he has a bad memory. Or Konami needs some money, and Kojima is hooking a brotha up.
Ok, enough lame comedy.
In an interview with French Gaming Magazine “IG”. Kojima has stated the following
“…there will be a Metal Gear Solid 5 with the new FOX Engine”.
“About Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things. There will be much question of infiltration, espionage, and convincing people to give you ‘a favour’ like in the last Metal Gear Solid.”
It seems that Kojima may throw in some aspects of another certain game with stealth elements.
“I liked the idea of social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but we will see. And if I say more, the female ninja public relations officer, who is behind the door, I will be carved up into pieces. So it’s better that we meet again when the time comes to talk about Metal Gear Solid 5.”
He goes on to confirmed that Solid Snake will get out of retirement once again to return for this game (that is if this game isn’t a prequel).
“Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance never claimed to be a Metal Gear Solid. This is not a game about our beloved Solid Snake. It is a spinoff that tries something different. We have not yet finished with Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots.”
